Stephen Covey once said, “Successful people begin with the end in mind.” I believe no success is worth losing your integrity. I believe that anything worth doing is worth doing right. I believe that trust is created with honesty, experience, and expertise, always in that order. I believe that value is in the eyes of the beholder and cannot be expressed in words. Our ULTIMATE end goal is to create results that meet, and hopefully exceed, our clients expectations.

I believe in listening before speaking. Listen with intent, speak with purpose. I see the big picture before I hurl myself headfirst into action. That said, once I know what the goal is, I come at it like a Tasmanian devil—well, a Tasmanian devil with considerably less rage and better business etiquette, but the energy is there. I take ambitious ideas and break them down into clear, bite-sized objectives. If you have a vision, I have a plan.

Paola CárdenasPeople Operations Manager | Project Manager

I am powered by authentic and transparent communication and meaningful interactions. I am an introvert who loves connecting with people one on one. I may not say much at first, but that’s because I’m staying present, observing and listening to what’s going on. My mind then goes a million miles per minute planning the next step, making a plan B and a plan Z, just in case. Being a planner by nature, I am flexible and open-minded in my planning, because unforeseen challenges may present themselves. Hence, why I make a plan B and Z.

Every interaction, whether internal or external, is an opportunity to cultivate something genuine.

Jeff King
Jeff KingProject Manager

Adversity has been my greatest teacher. It’s taught me how to solve problems, find creative solutions, discover the underlying need that the current issue is disguising, pull in resources to fill gaps, hear the unspoken words, and most importantly . . . to keep moving forward no matter what. I like to remember that behind all of our systems and processes there are real people with real concerns, real goals, and real obstacles to overcome. This is why project management is not just a job to me. By taking complicated problems and breaking them down into their component parts, we can develop a plan of action, keep things moving forward, and ultimately create meaningful change in the world.

The biggest desire I have in life is to help wherever/however I can through service to others and deep connection. Whether it was working in veterinary clinics, or running around in the U.S. Capitol, I slowly began to recognize the drive I have to connect with others through high-impact causes. As someone who loves finding creative solutions to people’s problems mixed with a little bit of self-motivation and mindset shifts, I found that overtime, I could really do the most good in the digital realm (specifically marketing and content) – because for me, we all desire to be seen, understood, and to be part of something bigger than ourselves. There is something about helping others see their own strengths and how to pull those out and into their business, and I love helping them understand where the story begins, and when or how to tell it in an authentic and creative way.

What We Believe

Build Meaningful Relationships

Life’s one long series of personal connections—the more genuine, the more meaningful they are, the stronger we become. This is it, so let’s face it TOGETHER!

Love What You Do

Passion is that undeniable feeling you get when you come up with something that excites you. It’s about loving the process. We call it being AWESOME ON PURPOSE.

Better Every Day
